Freeze Away Unwanted Fat Pockets

CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat cells. This non-invasive procedure targets areas like the abdomen, thighs, and love handles, effectively sculpting your body contours. During the treatment, a specialized device is applied to the targeted area, gently cooling the fat cells beneath the skin without harming surrounding tissues. Over time, your body naturally processes and eliminates these frozen fat cells, revealing a more toned physique.

Coolsculpting Treatment Areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin (submental area)
  • Back (bra fat)
  • Underneath the buttocks (banana roll)
  • Male chest (pseudogynecomastia)
  • Knees
  • Any other area with pinchable fat

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works through a scientific process called cryolipolysis, which selectively targets and eliminates fat cells through controlled cooling. When the specialized applicator is placed on the skin, it delivers precisely controlled cooling to the targeted area. This cooling causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process, without harming surrounding tissues. Over the following weeks, the body’s lymphatic system gradually removes the destroyed fat cells. This results in a reduction of fat in the treated area, leading to a more sculpted appearance.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Is CoolSculpting safe?

Yes, CoolSculpting is considered safe when performed by a trained and qualified healthcare professional. It has been cleared by the FDA for the reduction of fat in specific areas of the body. Additionally, CoolSculpting has a proven safety profile with minimal side effects, such as temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment site.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

The ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are individuals who are close to their ideal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution for obese or overweight individuals but rather a body contouring treatment for those looking to target specific areas of fat.

How long does a CoolSculpting treatment session take?

The duration of a CoolSculpting session can vary depending on the number of areas being treated and their size. However, most sessions typically last between 35 to 60 minutes per treatment area. Multiple areas can often be treated during the same appointment.

Is there any downtime after a CoolSculpting treatment?

One significant advantage of CoolSculpting is that there is minimal to no downtime after treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, including work and exercise. Some individuals may experience temporary side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising, but these resolve on their own within a few days.

When will I see the results from CoolSculpting?

While individual results may vary, most patients begin to see noticeable improvements in the treated areas within a few weeks after their CoolSculpting session. However, it can take up to 2 to 3 months to see the full results as the body gradually eliminates the destroyed fat cells.

Are the results of CoolSculpting permanent?

Yes, the results of CoolSculpting are typically permanent as long as the patient maintains a stable weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise. Once the fat cells are eliminated from the body, they do not return. However, CoolSculpting does not prevent the remaining fat cells from expanding, so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to long-term success.

How many CoolSculpting treatments are needed to achieve the desired results?

The number of CoolSculpting treatments needed varies depending on the individual’s goals and the targeted areas. Some patients may achieve their desired results with just one treatment, while others may require multiple sessions to fully address their concerns. Our CoolSculpting provider can curate the appropriate treatment plan based on your unique goals.
